Thiago Silva: I want to end my career at Fluminense
Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva has revealed that he wants to end his playing career at his former club Fluminense.
The 27-year-old spent two-and-a-half years at Flu before joining AC Milan at the beginning of 2009 in a deal worth around €10 million.
After spending four-and-a-half years at the San Siro, Silva joined French money-bags Paris Saint-Germain in July for a reported fee of €42 million.
Nevertheless, the Brazil captain admits that he hopes to play out the final chapter of his career at Fluminense as it was the club that gave him the chance to resurrect his career after spending four months in hospital with tuberculosis during his short loan spell at Dynamo Moscow.
''I hope I can wear the Fluminense shirt for the last six months of my career,'' Silva told SporTV. ''I have this dream of going back to play for Fluminense and retire wearing that shirt because that's where football all restarted for me.
''After that illness I had whilst I was playing in Russia, Fluminense was the club that opened up the doors for me to return to football and they gave me a new opportunity, because at that time I really wasn't sure if I would be able to play football again.''
